24. Read 3 books that Jenna picks out for me

(1 complete 12/22, 1 complete 7/20, 1 complete 10/15)
I finished The Shack last month. If Jenna had not given it to me and it hadn’t been on the book club list I would not have read it. It was challenging subject matter, more than a couple tears over the story. I liked it, but I don’t think I was a moved as the author would like the reader to be.

Description of the book from Amazon:
Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack's world forever. In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant "The Shack" wrestles with the timeless question, "Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?" The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You'll want everyone you know to read this book!
